Dark brown in color, hazy with a thin tan head. Lots of chocolate and coffee flavor and aroma. Nice silky taste with the light oatmeal. This was a super rendition by the boys at Fish.

12 oz single from "Lifesource" Salem. $1.79
very nice looking ale..near pitch black body topped by a gorgeous thick and creamy tan head.
After the good looks the aroma is on the slight side..toasted oats,coffee but faint.
Taste is strange its all rather sunshine fruitiness at the start then the dark chocolate and mid level black coffee take over..then a bit o cream..and again a sweetish finish.
Good palate to this one loved the different textures.
Overall a very nice stout

12 oz. bottle, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small tan / beige head. Aroma of light roasted malts, toasted bread, some metallic notes and oats. Flavour is rather light for a stout, with lightly toasted malts, oats, and maybe some faint cocoa notes. Nothing offensive, but just quite weak - though still pleasant in its subtlety.
